DNA-binding protein Tfx, archaea (IPR004645)

Short name: Tfx_DNA-bd_arc

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents a family of Tfx DNA-binding proteins, which is restricted to the archaea. TfX has a 2-layer alpha/beta topology. Homology among the members is strongest in the helix-turn-helix-containing N-terminal region. Tfx from Methanothermobacter thermautotrophicus (Methanobacterium thermoformicicum) is associated with the operon for molybdenum formyl-methanofuran dehydrogenase and binds a DNA sequence near its promoter.
